Taking Advantage of Grocery Sales
Recently I took advantage of a sale at Krogers for bone-in chicken breasts. I stocked up while the chicken was at a really low price. So now I have all of this chicken and I’ve been trying to find some new ways to prepare it. We get tired of the same old dishes all the time. My method of brainstorming new recipes is to open my pantry cabinets and stand in the middle of my kitchen with my hands on my hips and I mentally create recipes and decide whether it sounds good or not.
My husband is a Dr. Pepper lover so I just happened to have a case of Dr. Pepper sitting in my kitchen. I’ve seen Dr. Pepper used in recipes before so I thought, sure why not.
4 chicken breasts (bone in or boneless, whichever you prefer)
1 can of Dr. Pepper
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Place the chicken in the crockpot. If you are using bone in chicken, place it so that the breast side is down and the bones are towards the top. This keeps the breast, which easily dries out, down in the liquid.
Mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
Pour over chicken.
Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours. More or less depending on the size of the breasts.
Remove from slowcooker and enjoy.
We served this with a side of fresh green beans and coleslaw.
